Faux Headboard Art

Finally Something!!!!

So I have gone several years with out a headboard, or anything as a matter of fact, above my bed. It has been driving me crazy so I finally decided to do something! My mom & I spent an afternoon working on this...


Items needed:
PVC or Particle Board
Quilting Batting
Fabric
Staple Gun
Saw Tooth Hangers

Cut your fabric (if it's is print I would recommend lining it up as best as possible!) and place your batting underneath, tuck around the corners and staple! That's it.... attach saw tooth hangers, and hang.


I purchased my PVC board at Home Depot, they will cut it for you.
The dimensions I used are... H 30 in x W 18 in.

I am in L.O.V.E. with this print fabric, it is on my dishes and various places throughout my place. It is burlap so it's a little bit thicker, and it was pretty expensive (even on sale) Eeeek!

The options are endless on this project. You could choose your own size, fabric, colors, solids, prints. You could even add ribbons or buttons, or do a combination of solids and prints...
